LISTENING TO ANGELS

The pain of his
Soul
Welled up thick in his
Eyes, spilling
Into glistening lines
Onto
His black cheeks.

Piano keys drowned under his
Fingers
While his feet lifted then
Dropped
Onto pedals shiny and
Smooth.

His face tilted to the throne of
Heaven
As shoulders swayed
With the walk of
Jazz,
Speaking words angels shared
With him.
